Research Starts Here

Research Office


Ready, Set… Go! The Research Starts Here initiative has launched.

The Research Starts Here initiative aims to enhance how research supports and services are provided to Faculty at the University of Winnipeg.

The Research Starts Here Form (RSH) is the first step and is now active on WebGrants.

Remember, all Faculty applying for new projects will be expected to complete the RSH form at the outset of any proposed research application.

The RSH form will help manage research applications from start to finish and allow the Research Office to identify and anticipate supports and services to assist Faculty throughout the grant cycle including: pre-award, proposal development, submission, and post-award management.  For tips on completing your application please see Before You Submit.

The RSH form will also capture essential information needed to manage the provision of internal supports such as: matching funds, space requirements, release requests and grant review support.

Faculty feedback will be important to ensure the form is efficient and captures helpful information. Read More

Additional Research Grant Review Support - Pilot Project

The UW hopes to improve our success rates with external research grant applications for upcoming competitions by providing specialized external support for large grants.  This year, the Research Office is piloting a support program for applicants submitting grants in excess of $100,000 that will allow the principal applicant to receive help from an external reviewer experienced in specific granting agencies. Read More
